Gavin and Stacey star Mat Horne marries girlfriend in Norway three years after cheating death

GAVIN and Stacey star Mathew Horne has married his girlfriend in a lavish ceremony – just a few years after narrowly escaping death when he was hit by a train.

The actor, 43, tied the knot with Celina Bassili, a 27-year-old set designer, at a picturesque bash in her native Norway earlier this month.

It’s less than three years since Mathew miraculously survived being hit by a speeding train after a night out in a Nottinghamshire pub, but now he’s loved up and looking happier than ever with his new wife.

The intimate ceremony took place in Oslo in the 15-acre grounds of a 1930s mansion, with Celina posting shots of the chic Scandi bash to Instagram – with the exchange of vows set against a stunning forest backdrop watched by friends and family.

Celina and Mathew were first linked in July 2019, when they were photographed kissing in a Burger King during a break in filming for the Gavin and Stacey Christmas Special, which they both worked on.

They’ve also worked together on several other projects, including crime comedy Agatha Raisin and several short films.

It wasn’t until months later that the couple went public, at a charity theatre event in London in November 2019.

Matt split from his ex, actress Evelyn Hopkins, in October 2018 after a nine month engagement.

Two months later, Matt was lucky to be alive after being struck by a train near a level crossing in the village of Burton Joyce.

He was treated by paramedics after the incident in December 2018, which happened on a walk to his parent’s house following a night out at a local pub.

Mat later revealed his mum Glenis was dying at the time of the accident, and his “head was elsewhere”. She passed away in 2019, and has described the death of his mother as “profoundly life changing.
